Nashville Starling Removal
Starling removal is often needed to remove the number of birds to a acceptable level. In certain situations, removal may not be necessary with the right deterrent installed, as the starlings will no longer be able to roost there. Starling removal is often performed by live traps or trapping, shooting, and deterrents. Contact a professional at Animal Pros for expert help in removing starlings. In addition to being bird deterrent certified, we are also certified urban marksman.
Why are Starlings Attracted To a Building?
Starlings are commonly attracted to architectural buildings and man-made structures, utilizing structural protected areas that offer shelter from the environment. Starlings will usually stay in these areas especially if they are fed, and have a adequate water source. Simple modification of certain areas experiencing pigeon problems can make a long term solution. Starlings will commonly be drawn to level, flat ledges, I-beams, roofs, roof vents and AC units, shelfs, gutters, peaks, light posts, signs, and other area that offer protection. For warehouses with open bay or dock doors, this creates a open invitation, and starlings will take advantage of. Starlings are highly dependent of human activity, and will often be found in city buildings, parks, feed mills, yards, electric wires, bridges, and other structures.
Starling Damage From Droppings
Starlings can create a huge mess of droppings and nesting that can hold bacteria and pathogens, as there are more than 25 human communicable diseases associated with starling droppings. As the birds continually move over dried droppings, fungus spores or fecal particulates can become airborne. Histoplasmosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases associated with starling droppings, therefore professional help is recommended. This can be a issue if roosting next to a ventilation system on a roof, directly overhead of a public walkway, or in a warehouse. Starling Droppings are so highly corrosive , we have seen them eat through metals. Droppings will accelerate the deterioration of a building, and increase costs of maintenance greatly.
